We embrace irrational generosity.
We know it changes lives—ours and the people we’re reaching. At Elmira Community Church, taking action on your generosity is simple.
Tithing is our foundation of giving.
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. The Three-Month Tithe Challenge can help you get started.
Other Options for Giving
If you would like to dedicate your giving to other areas beyond the tithe, please leave a note on your gift that specifies which area you are giving to. Other areas which you can give to are listed below.
Creating Spaces & Places
When Christ changes a life dramatically, people take note. And when it happens to person after person in a community, a movement of God takes place. Giving an offering to Spaces & Places helps fuel growth for God's work to happen through new locations, new experiences, and new facilities.
Supporting Relief & Restoration
Sharing the love of Christ means bringing help and hope to people in need. By partnering with community organizations and local churches and focusing on opportunities that span the globe, supporting Relief and Restoration helps fight poverty, provide crisis relief, and bring freedom to the oppressed.
Engaging in Digital Missions
At Elmira Community Church, we will do anything short of sin to spread God's truth and love around the world. By leveraging technology, we’re able to reach the world for Christ in ways that weren’t possible in the past including: Church Online at Life.Church, the YouVersion Bible App, free ministry resources through Open, and more.
